My family lives only a few minutes from the beach, and we are never happier than when there is sand between our toes. We had a little birthday party for our friend Taylor on the beach because we thought it was the perfect place to celebrate! Jennifer from Party Dreamz in Orlando was kind enough to help set up the beachy birthday party.
As fun as having a birthday on the beach is, there are a few things to remember if you plan to use the beach as a party location.
Remember your party environment. The wind at the beach will wreak havoc with your party decor if you don’t plan for it! We made sure everything was weighted down—from the napkins to place cards, centerpieces and desserts to tablecloths.
The beach is a big place. We carved out a little piece of beach for ourselves at our party by putting up a ribbon garland. The bonus was that it floated in the breeze and added a great deal of whimsy and coziness to the event atmosphere.
Make Plan Bs and Cs for the kids. Even though we were there for just a short time, the kids managed to blow through activities and hopped into the (cold April) ocean fully clothed. It was our mistake not to make sure there was plenty to do and have lots of extra clothes on hand.
